The Washington Times - March 16, 2009, 08:51AM

You can get the full set of game times and announcer breakdowns from the fine folks at Awful Announcing, with the big detail over there being that the great Bill Raftery will be handling the call from Philadelphia. So that was a good reason for Maryland to be sent to Philly.

(On the bright side, there’s a chance Raftery will shout out “ONIONS” as Garrison Carr hits a 25-footer, so local fans aren’t getting shut out).


Anyway, all the game times were officially finalized over night, and here the games of relevance for the region —- with all games landing on Thursday.

Radford-North Carolina: Approx. 2:50 p.m. in Greensboro, N.C.

Maryland-California: Approx. 2:55 p.m. in Kansas City, Mo.

Villanova-American: Approx. 7:20 p.m. in Philadelphia

Morgan State-Oklahoma: Approx. 9:40 p.m. in Kansas City, Mo.

VCU-UCLA: Approx. 9:50 p.m. in Philadelphia
